About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I'm still a beginner, the thing I cook the most is curry chicken with rice. I like desserts, and have been trying different desserts so far. I'm learning quickly. Especially would like to learn how to bake a perfect cheesecake. I wish I had more time to cook, though.

Whoopie Pies
I followed the cake mix direction but used apple sauce instead of oil. I made the filling according to the recipe except used butter. Cooked the flour mixture on medium. Beat the final cream with mixer for about 5 minutes for it to be fluffy. Very good, very delicious. People loved them!

Almost No Fat Banana Bread
This is fantastic!!! I followed the recipe except that I used pumpkin puree because I didn't have any banana on hand but really wanted to make a quick bread LOL.. This is really quick to assemble, took me less than 10 min, pretty much the time the oven was preheating. The bread came out amazingly well, pretty and tasty. A keeper! I will try banana next time when I have bananas.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III
I made cupcakes instead of a cake and baked the cupcakes for about 15-20 minutes. It turned out really good! I followed other reviewers and added more cocoa powder. I also substitute one cup of fresh brew coffee for one cup of water to add more flavor (personal preference). If you like dark chocolate, this is a way to go!
